Whitney Port’s husband ‘did not approve’ of her party dress – do you agree?

The Weinstein Company and Netflix 2016 Golden Globes After Party

Get a load of Whitney Port! The recent newlywed (remember the mullet wedding dress?) took another fashion risk at Sunday night’s Weinstein Company and Netflix-sponsored after party at the Beverly Hilton, wearing a barely-there Michael Costello Fall 2016 bodysuit and net gown. I do think the term “gown” is a bit generous, as it looks like she’s wearing a full-length fishnet stocking. She posted a photo of the “dress” on Instagram with the caption, “Ok, so I know y’all are not used to seeing me like but I thought I’d try a little something different!! Always good to take some risks! Though the husband did not approve.”

I had to chuckle when I discovered she was wearing sunburst earrings from Jane Seymour’s Open Heart collection. All I could think about was Jamie Pressly’s character on My Name is Earl and her obsession with the jewelry line. Celebrities – at times they truly are just like us!

In my earlier post, many commenters wondered what socialite Olivia Palermo was doing at the ceremony. Maybe she was a celebrity seat filler? (I honestly don’t know why she was there either.) All I can say is that I absolutely adore the post-ceremony dress she modeled at the Weinstein after party. The cocktail length dress from Giambattista Valli Haute Couture is so pretty and sparkly and I love the cape effect on the back of the it. She completed the look with subtle jewelry from Verdura. Why she didn’t wear this dress to the ceremony is a mystery to me. It’s really cute, and don’t get me started on those shoes. They are gorgeous.

Jennifer Jason Leigh didn’t so much as make a quick change for the party, she just added a short sleeved fur coat to her light blue Roland Mouret gown (that apparently only I liked.) I am not a big fan of the coat, but I loved her in Hateful Eight, so she gets a pass for this one.

Mira Sorvino’s elegant black gown is everything. I absolutely adore it, and I’m not ashamed to admit it. She’s another actress who still looks fabulous – remember when she was the sweetheart of the 1996 Golden Globes after her Best Supporting Actress win for Mighty Aphrodite? Looks like it could have been last year. Way to class up the place, Romy.

Toni Braxton, no stranger to revealing award fashion (remember that white dress she wore for the 2001 Grammys?), showed up at the party bra-less in a white lace top that left little to the imagination. The accompanying high waisted white pants make her look short and I think the caption for this one should be, “If you can’t say something nice…” Well, the poor woman is battling Lupus and she really does look great. Just go for something a little more demure next time, hmm?

Toni wasn’t the only singer showing an expanse of skin. Over at the Warner Brothers and InStyle party was singer Charli XCX. I can only assume the invitation to this party listed the dress code as “as close to nude as possible.” Her crystal encrusted mini dress from Jamie Lee Major is giving me a major “opening number of ‘Goddess’ from Showgirls” vibe. I do like her gold Stuart Weitzman shoes, which cost more than my mortgage.

    it’s a horrible dress, but why should her husband approve??

    • Locke Lamora says:

      I know she meant it because it’s revelaing, which of course is a bit sexist, but I would think anyone with eyes would disapprove of this dress.

      Olivia’s dresa would be nicer without the cape thing.

    • Regina Phelange says:

      He expressed an opinion. Geez. I’m sure she would also “not approve” if he wanted to go out wearing a zebra print thong.

      • ell says:

        no, he didn’t approve of how revealing it was, which is different that having an opinion over an outfit.

      • Jay says:

        @ell I imagine any boyfriend/husband would disapprove of his significant other showing her entire ass on a red carpet. What’s your point? He’s not commanding her to change her outfit, just stating his opinion.

    • vauvert says:

      Pretty sure she meant it as a joke, like she is so edgy and daring… Putting on this outfit although hubs thought it was too revealing, like she is this feminist risk taker. No, she isn’t. Nobody is forcing her to wear a damn fishnet dress over a bodysuit. It is not a political statement. She wanted attention, and oh look, she got it, I don’t even have a clue who she is but here I am commenting.

    • Erinn says:

      Eh. I wouldn’t really “approve” if my husband put on a getup like this either. Would I stop him? Nope. He can parade around in his weird mesh bathingsuit hybrid if he REALLY wants – which apparently is the same thing Whitney’s husband did.

      It’s a horribly ugly dress – and kind of tacky. Not even because of the amount of skin – just the styling. Hey – power to her if she thinks she looks good, I guess. But I think there’s quite a difference between “approval” and demanding she go change.

    • BRE says:

      My husband wouldn’t be upset if I wore this from the aspect of it being so revealing. He would just look at me and say “don’t expect me to go with you if you wear a dress that ugly”.

    • Francesca says:

      People apparently are no longer allowed normal human feelings.

    • DrM says:

      Exactly. Not really material what he thinks. I for one LIKE the dress/bodysuit with tail. It looks fab on her.

    • bluevelvet says:

      Because he’s her husband. His opinion should matter above all others. Except hers, if she’s a selfish no taste twat, looking for a porn role.

  2. Snazzy says:

    Ugh they all look terrible. Do none of these people own a mirror?

  3. embertine says:

    So many of the women looked ridiculous, with their cutouts and their backlessness and their thigh-high slits. We get it, you are really dedicated to that abs workout. But it’s an award ceremony, not a strip club.

    I’m all for people feeling comfortable with their bodies and I don’t in the least think nudity is shameful, but I just don’t think it’s appropriate to turn up to a red carpet event with sideboob, your navel showing or your arse hanging out the back of your dress. It’s just tacky. I don’t want to be looking at an actress I admire, out in public at a works event, and be thinking what good work her waxer does.

  4. CharlotteCharlotte says:

    Do not like it. It doesn’t seem to line her, either.
    I thought Mira was La Aniston.
    Love JJL
    I think Toni looks good. Why should she “go a little more demure”?

    • vauvert says:

      Because most of us actually wear underwear in public…

    • CharlotteCharlotte says:

      If she’s feeling empowered, more power to her.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        How is that ugly gold mesh Kleenex empowering? She’s objectifying herself for publicity. She’s trying to be “shocking.” Yawn. She doesn’t look pretty, sexy, powerful, beautiful, intelligent, womanly, strong or anything like it. She looks awkward, uncomfortable and stupid. Look, I’m not trying to suppress her whatever. If that’s what she wants to wear or not wear, fine. Go naked if you want to. But let’s not pretend that this makes her stronger or more powerful, or that her intention is gain anything but attention.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        That came out way more aggressive than I meant for it to. Basically, I just think maybe you are giving her credit where it’s not due. But I guess I don’t really know her motives or intentions. Sometimes, I get carried away. I’m sorry.

      • CharlotteCharlotte says:

        gNAT, I wasn’t even commenting on the gold dress. I have no idea who she is. I meant Toni’s suit. Which I actually quite like. Bra or not. I don’t always wear a bra myself. Even for formal wear.

  5. CTgirl says:

    What has Jennifer Jason Leigh done to her face?! She appears unable to smile or really open her eyes. It’s sad when any woman feels the need to plasticize herself rather than age.

    • Esmom says:

      ITA, I thought maybe it was just me. This photo isn’t as bad but in lots of recent photos she has looked completely unrecognizable to me.

    • Gia says:

      Yuuuup. Dreadful what she’s done to herself. I’m amazed more people aren’t talking about it.

  6. t.fanty says:

    That’s not a dress.

    • Goats on the Roof says:

      Whit would fit right in at a beach party. Looks like a bathing suit and sheer mesh cover up to me.

      • Poisonous Lookalike says:

        Yes. It’s also unfortunate that the boob cups look like an enormous lemon cut in half, dyed black, and slipped under the mesh at a jaunty angle to wrangle her girls… and on top of all that, they’re failing miserably. It looks like everything’s sliding south.

    • Who ARE these people? says:

      It lacks only a fluffy little bunny tail in the back.

  7. Mimz says:

    Of all this, WTF is Charli XCX wearing? I mean, that’s really, really pushing it.
    Whitney’s body is not scandalous at all so although this should be shocking it’s not really on her body. Dress is ugly.
    I’m not a fan of Olivia’s cape, but it works better than the other dress she wore.
    And Toni… *Le Sigh* … She just loves some sheer. At least she’s wearing pants.

    • mp says:

      Charli XCX is NSFW

    • snakecharmer says:

      charli xcx needs a new makup artist her foundation is greasy and too heavy for someone so young. it looks like she glopped it on to cover her breakouts but the effect only ends up hilighting the blemishes

  8. GlimmerBunny says:

    The last “dress” truly looks like something a Vegas streetwalker would wear. Whitney’s is just ugly.

  9. Size Does Matter says:

    Toni – white lace chest vagina. Not good.

    And wasn’t Michael Costello from Project Runway? Makes sense for a reality show girl, I guess. Solidarity!

  10. Mellie says:

    I don’t approve of it either, though not for the same reason as her husband…I don’t approve of it simply because it’s bad fashion!

  11. lilacflowers says:

    How does Charli sit in that thing?

    • NeNe says:

      Her dress looks likes it was for a hooker show, not an award show!

      • Ankhel says:

        I’m a little embarrassed to admit I actually thought Charli XCX was a porn star for several months. Her name, her clothes, her cheeky posing- sorry girl, wrong idea, my bad!

  12. Esther says:

    its like she was swimming in a bathing suit and got caught in a fishing net.

    its seriously terrible fashion, no shape no form.

  13. mytwocents says:

    They are all so thirsty. …And the award goes to Charli, to all the others- best of luck next year!

  14. OSTONE says:

    To be a “fashion girl” the dress is hideous. Olivia’s is beautiful though!

  15. Kri says:

    Oh ffs.Most of these are scandalous because of the amount of bad fashion not skin. Charlie looks like she’s about to be announced “Coming to the stage now gentleman..it’s Charli”…get your wallets out”!!

  16. NeNe says:

    WTF is that, because that thing cannot be called a dress!?!?

  17. Snowflake says:

    I like tonis outfit, I think it’s really pretty and the fit of it is good. I don’t think it’s too scandalous, esp compared to the other outfits

  18. Esmom says:

    Port’s is atrocious. It reminds me of something Cher might have worn back in the day. Minus the fabulous attitude.

  19. What's inside says:

    It pretty much sucks. Straight to the garbage can when she gets home.

  20. Sassenach says:

    I think Toni looked great besides her bad wig. I don’t see why she should have to be “demure” when she is showing a lot less boobs than Kirsten but no one thought she needed to tone it down.

  21. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I’m over capes.

  22. AlmondJoy says:

    I mean… My husband probably wouldn’t like it if I went to an even showing this much skin… But the issue never came up before because I don’t own any fishnet dresses.

    You think Toni “should just go for something a little more demure next time”? Idk… She’s never been demure so I’m not sure why she should start now. I usually always hate the way she dresses so this is no different. It’s very Toni, though. And not half as revealing as Charli XCX.

  23. Kelly says:

    I don’t approve of it either. Come on. Why do they try soon hard.

  24. Crumpet says:

    Sounds like they have a wonderful marriage. *sarcasm*

  25. Sarah01 says:

    Horrible dress, perfect body!

  26. Debutante says:

    Mira Sorvino’s gown is Everything ??? Really ??

    SHE looks great—.the gown ?? Meh.

  27. I’m not Whitney’s husband, but I’m embarrassed by that tacky get up.

  28. Dr. Funkenstein says:

    Actually, I think it’s proof of his love for her. I mean, if your husband won’t warn you off of a monstrosity like that, they’re either completely fashion tone deaf (a real possibility) or they secretly hate you.

  29. clarencebeeks says:

    That dress was hideous.

  30. TreadStyle says:

    Major no to all except Mira!!!!

  31. Wentworth Miller says:

    I didn’t even know that Whitney got married. Wow!
    So, yeah the dress is ugly and it doesn’t even look like her usual style.
    If I were married and put that dress on to go out, my husband may disapproved, but that wouldn’t necessarily mean that I wouldn’t wear it if I really wanted to.

  32. Lex says:

    Is that really Mira Sorvino? Sure, I haven’t kept up with her career for the past 20 years but she looks like a totally different person!
    It’s hardly fair to hold someone up to their looks in their twenties though, I suppose. Shame on me

    • Lex says:

      Oh my gosh I just looked it up and saw she is nearly 50. I take it back! She looks amazing (just different than she used to!)

  33. Jag says:

    It looks like a bathing suit with a weird cover-up.

    Most of the rest are just awful, too.

  34. LMR15 says:

    Ok so her hubby doesnt “approve” but he hasn’t stopped her from wearing it. I think thats fine. We all have our opinions, but its ultimately her choice on what to wear. I don’t really care at all about her outfit but DAMN I am jealous of her figure!

  35. LAK says:

    It’s amazing how a person can wear next to nothing and manage to look like a nun!!!

  36. Jaana says:

    Meh. She just didn’t pull it off imo. Give that dress to Irina Shyak and she would have worked it!!

  37. LENA NOT DUNHAM says:

    OK Charli XC,she reminds me of Kat Von D face wiese,is it just me?

  38. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    Olivia couldn’t wear that dress to the awards because the wings wouldn’t fit in the seat. Seriously, she looks like she’s auditioning for Batgirl or something.

  39. Liz says:

    They all look cheap and trashy. If this is what passes for fashion, no thanks. And I can’t help but wonder how much all of that costs… It’s clearly not WORTH anything but I bet they put ridiculous price tags on it anyways.

  40. pinetree13 says:

    I’m late to the comment party so this probably won’t get read much but….in addition to not passing as a dress in my books….what the….that is so unflattering!!!!!!!! It makes it look like she has no boobs but then cut a padded bra in half and glued it to her skin where she thought boobs should go but glued it too low. SO UNFLATTERING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s actually giving me second hand embarrassment. Also this looks like the outfits that come in a box that you buy at a sex shop. I am not even kidding…what’s the difference?!?!?!?

    I mean if you are going to go nearly naked you would think you would at least want it to flatter you. She would actually look better topless rather than wearing padded cups at such a low/odd placement. SHUDDER.

    Also, Charli, who in an earlier CB article famously proclaimed she was not a one hit wonder….has obviously realized that she is, in fact, a one hit wonder and now must desperately claw to maintain her 15 minutes. Desperate for attention is all this says to me.
